BECOMING PUBLIC: DESIGN, HISTORY, PLANTS AND PRESERVATION IN EAST BAY GARDENS

This year we explored the warm hills of the eastern San Francisco Bay Area by visiting three now-public gardens (Dry Creek Garden – Hayward, Shinn Historic Park and Arboretum – Fremont, and Ruth Bancroft Garden – Walnut Creek) well adapted to their terrain and climate. All were developed by passionate garden-lovers between the 1880s and 1970s and are currently managed and maintained by cities, non-profit organizations and volunteers.
